Although the View Cams are no longer supported by Sharp most I remember have a digital connection through which the video will upload to you computer. Laptop, desktop or tower? IEEE 1394/ iLink 4-pin or 6-pin? Find the appropriate connection for your computer and go. The Sharp's end should be a 4-pin connector. You computer's native one probably is 6-pin. Any consumer electronics store will have the 4-to-6-pin cable. Cable to computer then cable to turned off camcorder. Turn on camcorder. Windows Media or Toast will handle most simple home projects. No IEEE 1394 on your computer? I get a generic PCI-slot add on card (up to $20 at the same stores), install it and (already have a DVD burner?) ..go!
The alternative path costs about $80.
Take the cam with you to the store. Find a generic A/V cable( a 3-ringed 1/8-inch pin plug[to the camera with video=yellow and 2-channel-white=left and red=right]audio dangling from the other end for a converter) and buy a A>D converter(Turtle Beach, Dazzle etc) that connects via USB. These converters usually come with software to make happen what you want. Good Luck

Truck is very sluggish when going up hills. Seems okay on highway (no hills) though. Any suggestions or common problems with these?

When was it last serviced? How many miles has it done? Does it freewheel OK, no drag? Have you had any work done recently that may be a clue?

I am looking for the Intake Air Sensor on a 2009 Nissan Titan or the location of the Coolant Temperature Sensor. Can someone please help me?

If you have a maf sensor near the air filter with lots of wires then the air sensor is built into it. Sounds to me you may be wanting to change the computer input for more power. Yes this can be done on either sensor but be aware you will wear out your catalytic converter and set a check engine light alot quicker.
Ignore this if I'm wrong with my apology.
